Great to have back on our Whanganui River Estuary our old godwit friend AJD, having arrived on the 29th November 2018. This is the 11th year he has been here, after spending a little over two months at Foxton, the place he first migrates to from Alaska. I first caught up with him this season at Foxton, on the 22nd of September, 2018. We expect him to stay here in Whanganui until the 25th of March, his preferred day of departure for the Yellow Sea. The photo below was taken on my phone, through the spotting scope.
